In the wake of a stormy day for Kadima, the party has presented its list for the next Knesset elections.


The party dispensed with its primaries in favor of its Arrangements Committee. The latter slated MKs Israel Hasson and Yohanan Plesner as Kadima Chairman Shaul Mofaz' numbers two and three.

MKs Zeev Bielski, Ronit Tirosh and Yuval Zellner rounded up the top five names on the list.


The list was presented against the backdrop of polls predicting that the party is likely to "crash and burn" in January's elections.


Earlier Wednesday, Kadima faction Chair Dalia Itzik, who previously served as Knesser speaker and acting president, announced she was quitting politics.


The party was rattled again a few hours later when veteran politicians MK Ronnie Bar-On and Jacob Edery informed Mofaz that they were quitting politics as well.
